333 Dexter — the last remaining full block site in South Lake Union and currently occupied by King 5 News — lies between Thomas and Harrison streets. The site will soon be transformed by a new 580,000-square-foot mixed-use office building that will provide an estimated 5,000 high-tech and retail jobs, and establish permeable street edges and generous open spaces to create a vibrant, pedestrian-oriented streetscape in what has been one of the city’s most heavily used vehicular corridors.
Kilroy Realty Corp., a 68-year-old development company with long-term ownership in a number of Seattle-area commercial properties, will be undertaking its first ground-up development in the Puget Sound region with its 333 Dexter project.
Kilroy recognizes that the workplace of tomorrow differs significantly from the workplace of the past. A company’s need for workspaces that create opportunities for interaction and collaboration are becoming increasingly important. To translate these goals into design, Kilroy retained an experienced design team led by The Miller Hull Partnership.
